Call For Papers

The Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) is the flagship IEEE forum for presenting and discussing humanitarian technology innovation and deployment. GHTC invites presenters to highlight technologies that meet the needs of the vulnerable and resource constrained populations as well as those impacted by natural and man-made disasters. Papers should include a discussion of factors such as economics, policy, culture, and environment that impact successful humanitarian technology implementation. GHTC welcomes papers and posters on humanitarian technologies and their deployment. Proposals for case studies, panel discussions, and workshops on humanitarian technologies are welcome. We encourage participants from academia, government, industry, research and non-profit organizations, to attend, present, and exchange ideas for creation and implementation of effective humanitarian technology.

The Conference theme of “Technology for the Benefit of Humanity” is presented in nine focus areas:

** Energy: Generation, and Distribution of Renewable Energy; Off-grid Energy for Lighting, Cooking and Heating.
** Health: Medical technology, Telemedicine, Mobile Clinics, Primary Care and Nutrition.
** Disaster Management—Disaster Planning and Preparedness; Predictive, Warning and Response Systems; Community Mobilization; Monitoring and Evaluation of Community Response.
** Connectivity & Communication—Communication and Information Technologies, Systems, and Applications; Social Media and Its Application;
** Humanitarian Challenges & Opportunities—Logistics and Transportation; Infrastructure, Information, and Human Security; Shelters; Interagency Coordination; Human-Centered System Design; Participatory Methods and Local Economic Stimulation.
** Water & Sanitation—Clean Water; Sanitation; Solid Waste Management; Disease Vector Control; Drainage and Hygiene.
** Agriculture—Agricultural Technologies, Irrigation and Farming Practices.
** Education—Training and Capacity Building; Programs; Methods and Service Learning.
** Deployment—Scale-up, Distribution, Implementation, and Commercialization of Humanitarian Technologies.

Authors may submit the initial abstract for a paper or poster presentation; or a proposal for a case study, panel discussion, and workshop. We especially encourage the inclusion of case studies and topics that are appropriate for interactive sessions. Submission of a full paper is required after initial abstract acceptance.


** All submissions require an abstract for initial review and acceptance, submitted online at www.ieeeghtc.org/author-central.
** All submissions must follow content & length guidelines available at www.ieeeghtc.org/author-central.
** Necessary revisions must be completed before final acceptance.
** Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent via email.
** At least one author of the accepted papers must attend and present at the conference.
** Attendees are responsible for obtaining the proper travel visas; the conference committee will send an invitation letter on request.

Accepted and presented papers and content that meet IEEE quality review standards will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Electronic media containing all accepted GHTC abstracts and papers will be distributed to registered attendees. All presentations may be recorded.

The IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference is sponsored by IEEE Region 6, IEEE Oregon Section, IEEE Seattle Section, IEEE-USA and IEEE Society for Social Implications of Technology; with the following IEEE Technical Society sponsors: Consumer Electronics (CES), Engineering in Medicine and Biology (EMBS), Power & Energy (PES), and Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTTS).
